“The Glorious Gift from an Awesome God”
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made. The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-3, 14
This time of year we celebrate the birth of God’s Only Begotten Son, whether some like it or not. They can change the name of the holiday, but they can’t take it out of our heart. I heard on the news that someone wanted to change the phrase of: “Merry Christmas!” to “Happy Federal Holiday.” How STUPID is that? Just another sign that we are DEFINITELY living in the LAST days, if not the last HOURS.
In the Gospel of John, he tells us that in the BEGINNING was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS God. Now there is no doubt that the Word is the Lord Jesus Christ. And He was with God when the world was created. As a matter of fact, ‘through Him ALL things were made; without Him nothing was made.’
God knew from the very BEGINNING that mankind would sin against Him, and He knew that they would need a SAVIOR. So He sent the ONLY ONE who could be a PERFECT SACRIFICE, Jesus. John says that; “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.” This is what Christians, the TRUE BELIEVERS, celebrate EVERY DECEMBER, but we actually should celebrate EVERY DAY. We should realize the purpose of His coming to this earth in flesh and blood and dwelling among us, NOT as a Mighty King, even though He is one, as a matter of fact, He is the KING OF KINGS, and He didn’t come as a Lord ruling over the entire earth, even though He is one, He is the LORD of LORDS. But Jesus came as a baby wrapped in flesh and blood, just like any other human being. He wasn’t born into a wealthy family or a royal family, but just a poor lowly carpenter and his wife. He came and lived among the common, ordinary people, even though He was anything but, common or ordinary. He was the Word who was God and who made ALL that was made.
He was and is God’s GLORIOUS gift to mankind, for the salvation of their soul. He came, He lived, He died for YOU and ME! And He is my GLORIOUS gift from my LOVING, HEAVENLY FATHER. He is the HOPE OF HEAVEN, and the ONLY WAY to get there. You MUST come to Him by: CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, that GLORIOUS gift from an AWESOME GOD, who LOVES you SO MUCH that He GAVE Himself to SAVE you from Hell. So come to Him NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!! Oh yes, MERRY CHRISTMAS Y’ALL!!!!
